The program is open to all TNAA travelers with an RN degree. To qualify for tuition reimbursement, travelers must have successfully completed a minimum of 52 weeks on assignment within an 18 month period or 78 weeks on assignment within a 24-month period to be eligible for tuition reimbursement.
Once the applicant is enrolled and starts their first course of the BSN program, the weeks on assignment will start to count towards the minimum goal of either 52 or 78 weeks on assignment to be eligible for reimbursement.
